Hey! I resemble that remark!!

I was so happy to see the letters column come back to DC.  I didn't care about losing the few pages to keep DC's price to 2.99, and the letters column was an added bonus.  "Wow!" thought I, "the return of the letters column is a symbolic gesture that DC wants to get in touch with their fans!!"

But did anyone take note of this particular letter?


So I guess becuase I'm a typical message board, twitter, or chat people-type person (Carl failed to mention blogs, but I'm assuming guilt by association here) that a.) I don't work b.) I don't enjoy reading comics.  Ooookay.  I don't know about you, but I definitely sit around the house all day eating a bag of Oreos whilst recklessly downloading illegal comics by the gigabyte.  And then I don't read them NOR do I enjoy them.  Then, for good measure, I kick a puppy.  No wonder DC can't trust my opinions.  They're the opinions of a puppy-kicking, lazy, unhappy, unproductive, misguided miscreant.  Gee, I never realized that about myself but now it all makes sense.  No wonder I'm a failure at life!

Thanks, DC for keeping my hopes up about your perception of me!

What next, is my dream of a flying car going to be dashed, too??

And who has the time to buy and read comics AND write letters to DC Comics about it? The Comic Shop Guy. Who bought that comic to sell to someone else for a profit but read it beforehand while eating Cheetos and sitting around a dusty comic shop which barely sustains his slothful ass.

I like the letter columns :P
It's always a fun read - be it on the positive or negative rants.

It is a bit of an...odd letter. I didn't understand what he meant by people who don't have time to buy AND read comics. Why would you buy them and then NOT read them? Who buys a sandwich and then doesn't eat it?

Weirdos that's who. And you don't want weirdos in your shop.

I think you guys are all taking this too personally. While he definitely worded it poorly, I interpret his meaning to be that not everyone has time to hangout on blogs/messageboards etc. to discuss and analyze comics. The letter columns are a good way to do this. I've enjoyed the letter column in Invincible for quite sometime, especially since I haven't found a internet home for him like I have for the DC universe in you guys.

But...but overanalyzing is what we DO!

And overreacting is what *I* do!! Life is so much more exciting this way! You should see me when a careless driver cuts me off! It's better than an episode of the Sopranos!

Heh. You and me, Liss. I have a tendancy to suffer from Vehicular Tourette's Syndrome sometimes.
